Columbus, Ohio– Fast-food chain Wendy’s says it’s pulling lettuce off sandwiches at its restaurants in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania after people who ate them there fell ill.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday they are trying to determine whether romaine lettuce is the source of an E. coli outbreak that has sickened at least 37 people and whether romaine lettuce used at Wendy’s is also served or sold at other businesses became.

The CDC said one person was also sick in Indiana. A message was left at Wendy’s about lettuce on sandwiches in this condition.

The CDC said there is no evidence that romaine sold in grocery stores is linked to the E. coli outbreak. The agency also said it isn’t advising people to stop eating at Wendy’s or not eat romaine lettuce.

Wendy’s says lettuce used in its salads is different and unaffected by its decision to pull the lettuce out of sandwiches. The company said it is working with the CDC.

“As a company, we are committed to maintaining our high standards of food safety and quality,” Wendy’s said in a statement.
